thanks for hint. right now my main problem is that i'm not able to
sucessfull do 'buildworld' with CC/CXX/CPP set in src.conf. this
should be reproducable quite easy by either adding:


to src.conf or


i posted the error output beforehand. this problems has nothing to do
with anything in make.conf since i commented out every gcc44 stuff and
even CFLAGS and so forth. for me the only way to successfully do
'buildworld' is to make sure CC/CXX/CPP aren't set in src.conf or as
